You have questions, Rare bird beauties has answers.

What is custom matching?

Custom Matching is the process in which we meet with a bride in person at our studio to figure out the perfect set of extensions for her bridal look. We match you with the perfect extension based on your hair color, length, thickness, and your desired bridal hairstyle for your wedding.

What does "seamless clip-in extension" mean?

Seamless clip-in hair extensions are the gold standard of hair extensions.

The technical definition of seamless clip-ins means the hair has been fused to a flexible silicone weft as opposed to being sewn to fabric or lace.

This allows the weft to lay flat on your scalp making them unnoticable. To be honest, you will likely forget you are even wearing extensions once they are in.

How do I set up my custom matching appointment?

You can set up your appointment through our website here. A custom matchpointment costs $25 and takes about 15 minutes with our hair specialist.

How much will my bridal extensions cost?

Typical cost of our extensions run from $350-$800. The price is based on a few factors including:

Color - single color extensions are less expensive than extensions that need to be highlighted to match a brides hair.

Length - the longer the extensions you need, say 16 inch vs. 22 inch, the more expensive they will be.

Weight - Brides with thinner hair may need extensions that are 100-150 grams in weight, while brides with thicker hair may need up to 200 gram extensions. Typically, the more your extensions weigh, the more they will cost.

Number of extensions - some brides will only neeed 2 or 3 extensions to achieve their bridal look, while others will need 6 or 7. The more extensions you need, the higher the cost.

How long does the custom matching session take?

The custom matching session is fairly quick and typically takes 15 minutes.
